Kanyakumari, heart of Nachinadu where the history is sleeping. Kanyakumari is always attracted by the tourists from around the world. Village roads, coconut farms, Banana farms, rice fields etc which are being hugged by the hands of the ocean. If you want something special in your holidays, you have to visit this beautiful place. This place is at the southern tip of the Indian subcontinent, where the Indian ocean, the Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea meets. Only two days is enough to see and enjoy Kanyakumari.

Journey starts from ‘Chitharal’. Jain sculptures in chitharal are amazing architectures to watch. We can see a 9th century Temple, sculptures and ancient writings etc on the hill top. To reach here I have to travel through the Trivandrum-Kanyakumari national highway, while reaching Attur village travel almost 3km left to reach Chitaral. After seeing this amazing place, take a shower in ‘Tripparappu’ waterfalls (Kumari kuttalam) in Kothara near Chitaral. Above the waterfalls we can a Stone Mandav and 13th century Tripparappu MahaDev temple. From here go to nearby Place ‘Thoval’, where the flowers are cultivated. Take some flowers and pictures continue your journey to Kanyakumari seeing windmills.

Finally reaching Kanyakumari goes to Vivekananda rock by taking a boat. There you can see Sripada rock (Kanyakumari goddess done meditation), Meditation Mandav, Vivekananda monuments etc. The next thing one has to see here is the 133feet tall stone statue of Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar. At the evening, see and enjoy the setting sun. While seeing it memories will come and goes in your mind. Don’t go from here; take one room and stay to see the sunrise. Seeing it will give a new hope and freshness to your mind.

If you have some more time, you can go to the Baywatch water theme park, Suchintram temple and sothala beach. The journey starts from the history and should end at the history, so go and see the famous Padmanabhapuram Palace at Thakkala 37km from Kanyakumari.

      Kanyakumari was once with Kerala but later gifted to Tamil Nadu when partition on linguistic base took place in the mid 50s. It is truly a beautiful place. Keep on writing. I am to meet a Malayali here on HP Platform. All the best.
